RT Admission
Spring-Start 2015 Applications Accepted: To be determined (Jan. 2015)
Applications will not be accepted before or after the application window. 
Mailed applications & materials must be postmarked by the application deadline.
General Information
  • The Radiologic Technology (RT) program is a spring-start, 8-quarter program.
  • Students who have completed all general requirements and prerequisites are eligible to apply.
  • Program acceptance is based on grades (see Program Acceptance section below).
  • All applicants will be notified by late January.
  • Students must be 18 to start the program.

Transfer Students
To determine which transfer credits meet RT prerequisites, students may request an official Credit Evaluation. This step usually takes a few weeks to complete. Students can also use the Equivalency Chart. This chart is subject to change and is meant to be used as a guide only.

Application Requirements
Students who wish to have their application and/or prerequisites reviewed should schedule an appointment with the Allied Health Educational Planner early (509.682.6830). No appointments to review applications will be scheduled during the time when applications are being accepted.
  • Attend an Allied Health Information Session (this requirement is waived for students who live out of the area).
  • Apply to WVC.
    • Select spring quarter 2015 as the quarter you plan to begin. If you are taking classes at WVC in winter quarter 2015, you do not need to re-apply.
  • Complete all prerequisites by the end of fall quarter 2014 with a "C" (2.0) or higher.
  • Ensure that your cumulative college GPA is a 2.50 or higher.
  • Attach sealed, official college transcripts from all colleges where you have earned credit (besides WVC).
    • Note: If you are taking fall quarter 2014 classes at another school (besides WVC), and your fall grades will not be posted on your official transcript by the application due date, attach an unofficial transcript showing your fall grades (this is in addition to the official transcript).
  • Complete the RT Application (coming in fall 2014).
Program Acceptance
Selection of applicants for the RT program is based on a probability of success score. Students with the highest scores are admitted. Students' scores are determined using:
  • Cumulative college GPA.
  • Average grade from BIOL& 241 and BIOL& 242 (or equivalent transfer courses).
    • Note: repetition of BIOL& 241 and/or BIOL& 242 (or equivalent transfer course) due to (a) earning a grade lower than a "C" (2.0), (b) withdrawal, or (c) changing from credit to audit mid-quarter will result in a deduction of points. Each repetition will result in additional deductions. Deductions negatively affect the probability of success score.

After Acceptance
Successful applicants will receive a packet from the Allied Health Department detailing these next steps. Do not include these items with the application.

  • Pay a $50, non-refundable, acceptance fee.
  • Provide a copy of a current Healthcare Provider CPR card.
  • Provide a copy of a current Basic First Aid card (for adults, children, and infants).
  • Provide documentation of 7-hour Washington state HIV/AIDS certificate.
  • Provide documentation of immunizations.
  • Provide verification of major medical insurance (accident/injury).
  • Provide background check information.
  • Provide results of a five-panel drug test from a certified lab.
  • Complete the Allied Health Packet.
  • Provide proof of liability insurance (calculated into tuition and fees at time of registration; tuition receipt can thus be used as proof).

Additional Notes

  • Acceptance to WVC does not guarantee acceptance to the RT program.
  • Incomplete applications will not be considered.
  • Students who leave the RT program for any reason should contact the RT Director to discuss re-entry options (509.682.6677). 
  • On-the-job physical requirements include: ability to lift 50 pounds, carry 20 pounds, sit for 4 hours, and stand for 8-12 hours.
  • Conviction of certain crimes may prevent completion of the clinical course requirements of the program and may prevent future licensure and employment in health care. A criminal record check is required prior to any clinical training experience or clinical field trips. Students with a criminal record should meet with the Dean of Allied Health & Nursing (509.682.6660) to determine if the criminal history would prevent access to a health care facility.
